Indians are always excited about SUVs, this is evident from the industry sales figures which show a consistent growth. But now a lot of them seem to be losing their off-road abilities and becoming more crossover-like than SUV. Now the iconic brand Jeep seems to have a solution with their expertise in what they are known for, a real true breed SUV and it is called the Jeep Compass. Jeep entered India with two models namely Grand Cherokee and Wrangler, but couldn’t find success largely due to high prices of these models since these were imported as CBUs.
Now, Jeep seems to have an answer to this problem, the new Jeep Compass is a complete ‘Make in India’ product, which can help Jeep to keep the prices in check. The Compass aims to check the three boxes that most Indians look for—practicality, a premium feel and an affordable price tag. The Jeep Compass’s design has managed to find a perfect balance between modern and premium-looking along with being rugged and intimidating.
The Jeep Compass’s interiors look just as smart as the exterior with its interesting cabin design and layout. The latest Jeep Compass has two engine options, one is the 1.4-litre Multiair turbo-petrol with 160 hp and the other is a 2.0-litre Multijet II diesel with 170 hp. Since this new Jeep intends to tick all the right boxes, the final verdict will depend on its pricing. If Jeep manages to price the Compass competitively, it is sure that they have a winner with them.
